What Every Mother Needs To Know About Breastfeeding

Mother And Newborn Baby In White NurseryAs a single mother raising two girls, breastfeeding was quite the task. I faced challenges that I believe many mothers do in trying to balance breast feeding and being a working mom. There are many aspects of breast feeding that I learned simply through trial and error. Many however, I wish I had known earlier in motherhood. In sharing my experience with you, I hope to assist you in navigating through the every day breast feeding challenges.

In this short video, I discuss my experience and how to go about choosing what is personally best for you and your child.

Here are a few additional tips about breast feeding that you may not have known:

  • Breastfeeding equipment, counseling for pregnant and nursing women, and certified lactation consultants are now covered as preventive care under the Affordable Care Act.
  • Under the Patient Protection and the ACA, the federal law requires employers to give break time and a place (other than a bathroom) to express breast milk at work.
  • Breastfeeding lowers your risk of some cancers, diabetes and heart disease.
  • Breast milk contains antibodies that help your child fight off viruses and bacteria.
  • Breastfeeding lowers your baby’s risks of having asthma or allergies.

I’d love to hear about your own experience with breastfeeding. Please leave a comment on Facebook or Instagram.
